Title: Girl on the Train
Post by David Morgan on Today at 12:11
Just spotted this Reuters story, & thought it was just as well Clive did his drowning in eyes back in the less correct 60s....

Italian convicted for staring at woman on train

Fri Apr 18, 2008 Italy (Reuters) - An Italian man was given a suspended jail sentence for staring too intensely at a woman sitting in front of him on a train.

A judge sentenced the man in his 30s, whose name was not revealed, to 10 days in prison and a 40 euro fine after a 55-year old woman filed a complaint for sexual harassment. His lawyer said on Friday he would appeal the sentence. The court will explain its verdict later.

The two met on two separate occasions in 2005 on a commuter train going from Lecco, a town in northern Italy, to Milan. The first time, the man sat next to the woman but she felt he had moved too close for comfort. The next day, the man sat in front of the same woman and according to her complaint, stared at her for the whole journey.

The two did not speak.

Do we know if she was reading Verlaine, though?

The fine is approximately 32.00 so more than 10 needed from the bank aswell - incidentally, was it raining?
